Dolphin Blames Police For Ranchers’ Loss

The management of Dolphin Football Club has attributed its 0 – 2 loss to Ranchers Bees in a Week Eight game in Kaduna last weekend to the wrongful arrest of its players by men of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) of Rivers State.
Three of the club’s first team players, Captain Ejindu, Sunday Mba and Jonah Abutu, were reportedly arrested on the night of November 24 at the GRA in Rivers State, where they had to gone to eat.
“The management of Dolphin can as well blame the Rivers State Police Command for their 2-0 loss to Ranchers Bees because three of our first team players were locked up at their cell when they should have been training with the rest of the team. Three points lost in Kaduna that can never be gained,” the club’s media officer, China Acheru, wrote
Due to the incident that took place last week, the Premier League club is demanding an apology from the Rivers State Police Command.
The club has also questioned the operation of the police concerning combating crime.
“The management of Dolphin is demanding that the Rivers State Police Command tender and apology to the team after wrongfully arresting three of our players last week.
“How come the police only make arrests after the real culprits are gone? How come the players were still arrested after tendering their identifications as Dolphins’ players? How come nobody from the Dolphins management was allowed to see them after their arrest? How come the police still collected bail money after they acknowledged that the players were wrongly arrested and bail like they say is free?” Acheru’s statement read.
